When or where was it that people started to listen to music and enjoy it? Nobody knows! What we DO know is that no matter how different people are, it has always been in their DNA to like music and enjoy it, and that music is one of the few things that can connect them all. Music has many wondrous benefits of which we will mention a few in the following lines.
1- Music is one of the easiest and most effective methods for lowering stress levels. You almost do it instinctively. You just start listening to music or thinking about it when you are fed up with your loads of work or study.
2- Music makes you a better runner. It makes you want to run faster and for a much longer time. Moreover, the more you like the music, the better you run (I’ve tried it myself).
3- Many people have testified to music’s effect and therapeutic power over depression. Moreover, it was found out that music can cure several symptoms of depression such as sleep disorders. For best results, try classical music.
4- Music improves some cognitive functions, especially those related to learning and recalling information.
5- It was proven that music has succeeded in improving the verbal intelligence of 90% of the listeners. This means music helps people better understand words and express their meanings.
6- Music helps people achieve better academic results. It has a positive effect on people as young as six years old.
7- It makes you a better driver. It calms your nerves if you listen to it while driving, which makes you drive more safely.
8- It cures you of overeating. Listening to music instead of watching TV while eating makes you more appreciative of your meal and more concentrated on enjoying it instead of finishing it.
